Scripture- 2 Timothy 3
Observe It– Paul wrote to Timothy about the end times, times that Timothy experienced then and we still experience now- a culture driven by selfish pursuits. What does Paul invite Timothy to focus on and lead with instead of selfish pursuits?
Apply it– How can I keep my focus on the things that God is inviting me to focus on? What is driving me to do an excellent job at work, to be an amazing spouse, or parent? May God’s love, his word, and truth lead us towards loving others well and living life to it’s fullest, rather than our own selfish pursuits.
Prayer- God, help me to stop focusing on what just makes life better for me, and instead be consumed with living for you, loving people well, and being who you’ve designed me to be. May my life inspire others to draw closer to you. Amen.
